Bx are building a two-sided marketplace that connects growers who want to store more carbon in the soil with corporates who need to offset their carbon emissions. It is farm-inspired blockchain technology, incentivising growers to change behaviours to climate-smart practices and financially rewarding them using carbon credit tokens.
"There's no hiding here. The platform is on the blockchain. If you sign up to this, you're signing up to transparency, but you wanted to be transparent, because you're a good person, and you're wanting to do something positive."
